From the very first aggressive skate in 1995, first and foremost, Razors built its legend based on the ideas of strength and durability. The Razors SL model raises the bar taking these attributes to dramatic, new heights. The boot shell is made of a new high density polyurethane which provides longer lasting support even after months of skating and prolonged exposure to warmer temperatures. The soul frame and sliders are now made from harder materials providing for even faster grinding speeds and longer soul frame life. The result is the strongest and fastest Razors skate ever. Yet it continues to offer remarkably light weight and amazing responsiveness. Perfectly grooved backslide plate and baseless design allows the skater to experience a lower center of gravity, direct contact while grinding, easy transition during switch-ups and seemingly effortless balance on boot tricks such as backslides, royales and torques.
Following tradition Dre Powell choose a soft boot design also for his second pro skate. He completely redesigned the skin, chose suede leather and made it an integral part of the boot. The result is a clean look, minimal added weight and long durability.
The first thing you will notice is a deep and solid sound when landing, which is due to a new shock and sound absorber in between the soul and the boot. Other new features are a new buckle receiver, pre-stretched waxed laces and a Jug liner specifically designed for Dre. The Dre 2 comes with the SL cuff which provides ultimate support and perfect flex and is loaded with branded parts such as GC’s Formula 1 XS frames and BHC wheels.
